Loretta Lynn was honored, big time, in the country music world a few weeks ago! She was given a statue, of herself, that went up in front of the Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville! The Ryman Auditorium is also known as the “Mother Church” because it’s an iconic place in the history of country music. Other iconic artists like bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe and Little Jimmy Dickens also have statues out front. The ceremony to present the statue was in late October and Loretta Lynn was unable to attend but she shared the words below with The Tennessean, “My dream like thousands of other singers was just singing on the Grand Ole Opry. Being a member of the Grand Ole Opry has been one of the greatest honors of my life. Many years I’ve stood on the stage of the Ryman Auditorium, and there’s no place like it. Now they’re unveiling the statue in my honor. It’s like I’m going to get to be there for many more years to come.” Below is a photo that a fan took outside the Ryman while visiting her favorite artist.
